Van Staal premium spinning reels are genuinely crafted from high-level titanium and steel, which also the same materials made to build an aircraft. The Van Staal’s frame, rotor and spool are made from billet aluminium for the ultimate strength compared to other high-end reels that are made of weak aluminium and plastic.
The Van Staal spinning reel has a waterproof maintenance free drag system that can withstand any harsh conditions, because of the two stainless steel ball bearings that gives a very smooth drag. For a smooth operation, the large diameter shaft is made from solid titanium and polished to its shiniest.
